Pilot injured in small plane crash

A single-engine plane crashed Monday night as it was landing at the Montgomery County Airpark, careening into a stand of trees and leaving the pilot with non-life-threatening injuries.

Firefighters responding to a call from the one-runway airport near Montgomery Village shortly after 5:30 p.m. Monday found the plane in the woods next to the 4,200-foot runway, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, spokesman for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services.

The unidentified pilot was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Garcia said. There was no evidence of fire or smoke, he said.

Federal and county officials did not immediately know the cause of the crash.

"It looks like it came up just short of [the] runway," said Jim Peters, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

The plane is a Socata TBM 700, a turbo-propeller plane that seats up to eight people. It is registered to Nova Aviation LLC, based in Port Orange, Fla., according to FAA records.

A telephone number for Nova Aviation could not be immediately found Monday night.

Keith Miller, director of the Montgomery County Revenue Authority, which owns and operates the 50-year-old airport, did not know about the crash when reached by The Gazette Monday night.
